How to share big video files privately

Kathleen Atkins

We’re long past the old days of shared dinners and long nights of vacation slides.

Now when you want to assemble trip memories, it could easily be a video that you make available to your companions. But how to share a big file securely? That’s what Larry98765Ottawa asked the Lounge members in the Graphics/Multimedia forum. He was happily surprised by the workable suggestions he received there.
